Been a while, decided to get another kitten. Our boy Shep luv'd his last kitty friend Claude before he died suddenly a couple years ago. So figured it should be an easy transition as he lived with cats before.
We picked out a spunky Savannah with little fear. I mean it has some fear, but she can be inches away from Shep's face purring away.
Shep however is quite fearful of this 1lb 12 week old bundle of joy. Last night for example, as we were trying to introduce, they were sitting side by side, kitten was kneading my leg, stretched her paw and was going to knead him at the same time. He panicked and snapped at her.
We thought today, we'd set up the huge crate in the kitchen (5x4x3), lock the kitten inside. Give them a chance to get to know eachother. He charged the crate. Which of course freaked her out so she tried forcing herself out between the bars.
For the last while we've had her quarantined in a spare bedroom. They've smelled eachother under the door, that's about it.
So anyways, we're looking for tips and advice to make this work.
